The Cavern Resort & Spa, named after the infamous Cannibal Cavern, is nestled in the foothills of the Northern Drakensberg in the Amphitheatre World Heritage Site area. A place of captivating beauty, it is surrounded by majestic, lush indigenous forests and clear 'berg streams. Once a humble homestead, rustic and simple, today The Cavern is a comfortable home-from-home for many tourists who holiday in the majestic Drakensberg Mountains.
The Carte family has owned the Cavern for 75 years and from the outset have given guests memorable holidays. Without obliging anyone to do anything, they encourage the guests to mix on outings and activities. Options include fishing, hiking, mountain biking and horse riding.
The Cavern is nationally recognised by KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife as a Site of Conservation Significance for conserving rare, endangered and endemic species. The grasslands are rich with famous ’berg flowers, the forests are home to 70 tree species and our bird list boasts an impressive 204 species, 24 of which are endemic. Eland patrol the hills and also feature in many ancient Bushman cave paintings.
